cybersearch.pngMozilla released Firefox 3.1 Beta 1 the other day, and users playing with version 3.1 for the first time will be able to enjoy some of the enhancements it brings to the table. Things like advanced address bar filtering, better tab switching, and drastically improved JavaScript performance are the main highlights for this release.

We want to do our part to try and support the testers, and that’s why we’ve been trying to keep the CyberSearch Firefox extension up-to-date with the latest changes in the browser. Our latest release, version 1.0.5, has full support for both Firefox 3.0 and pre-release versions of Firefox 3.1. We’ve had a few different things break in the nightly builds of Firefox 3.1, and our users have been good about notifying us when any problems occur. We then do our best to fix them as fast as possible.

In order to get CyberSearch updates out to you as quickly as possible we’ve posted a direct installation link to the newest release on the CyberSearch homepage. We’re doing this because it will probably take Mozilla awhile to get around to approving our new version, but we want this in the hands of Firefox 3.1 testers as soon as possible.

So now you can test out the new Firefox 3.1 Beta, and tinker around with our extension at the same time. I do have to say that the JavaScript speed improvements can be pretty noticeable in Firefox 3.1, and I can’t wait to see what the final release is like.
